World's Largest Plug-In Hybrid Ordered

Color Line has signed a contract with Ulstein for construction of the world’s largest plug-in hybrid vessel. The ship, to be built at Ulstein Verft, will provide services between Sandefjord, Norway, and Strömstad, Sweden, from summer 2019.

According to MANA, the ship will be a plug-in hybrid, in which the batteries are recharged via a power cable with green electricity from shore facilities or, as a secondary alternative, recharged on board by the ship's generators.
The 160-meter (525-foot) vessel, with the working name Color Hybrid, will be able to carry 2,000 passengers, 100 crew and 500 cars. It will have almost double the capacity of M/S Bohus which is scheduled to be phased out when the new ferry enters operation.
Steel cutting is expected in July 2017 and delivery in May 2019.
